Breeding Structurally Sound, Well Balanced Aussies For ALL Venues


2003 - 2016

(Petersranch Black Bear X Four Bar X Sidney)


We bought Certik ("Little Devil" in Slovak language) in January 2004.
Certik was one strong, healthy and very intelligent male who loved people and small children. He greeted visitors with a Frisbie in his mouth. Certik was almost 21" tall and weighed close to 50 pounds. He had a very nice head with beautiful brown eyes, scissor bite and higher ears that would fall forward. His black coat was of medium lenth without any copper. Certik had just a little white on his toes and white strip from his chin to his belly.
Certik was very fast, focused and agile canine, jumping 26" in USDAA agility. He was AKC, ASCA and CKC registered. He was healthy throughout his entire life and died at the age of 13 due to enlarged prostate complications (he was intact male). Certik was a thinking dog, always ready to do anything he was asked. He was also a powerful working dog with tons of natural ability and presence. But he also had a very good OFF switch. He would never bother livestock unless he was told. His herding ability were amazing, he was as strong fetching dog as he was driving dog. Certik always worked quietly and low with a lot of eye. He would bite heads and heels if needed. He was also outstanding in Agility, Obedience, Rally, Tracking and Frisbie. This unique dog will be always remembered for winning the coveted 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 Most Versatile Australian Shepherd award (and front cover of Aussie Times), the achievement that no other dog in ASCA history was able to accomplish. Certik is now HOF sire thanks to his pups all over the world. We still have some frozen semen from Certik.

Misko (Mike in Slovak language) is line-bred Hangin’ Tree dog
that showed interest in working cattle when he was barely 4 months old. His sire is our Certik and dam is Hangin' Tree Trouble. Two blue merle females "Trouble" and "Dolly" were shipped to me from Rising Sun Farm, MN to breed to Certik in early 2007, but only Trouble ended up with puppies at that time. I was not quiet sure if I was ready for another working dog, but when Misko was the only puppy left from this amazing cross, I decided that he should come and live with us. Misko was such a lovable, happy-go-lucky and animated puppy. He always made me smile watching him play and bounce around. Misko loves everybody, he is such a sweet boy!
But he is a very tough working male with a lot of natural talent, eye and grip to work any type of stock. He is around 19" tall and weighs maybe 45 pounds, smaller but powerful package and very enjoyable working team player. He has nice rich merle coat of medium lenth, one blue and one mostly brown eye, beautiful ears and scissor bite. He has only a hint of copper on his rear legs. Misko, just like his dad Certik, would bite heads and heels of cattle. He doesn't bark when he works, instead, he is fast and focused using fair amount of eye. Misko is outstanding in anything and everything he does. He is Herding, Agility, Obedience and Supreme Performance Champion, just like his dad Certik. We also used to compete in Tracking and Rally in both ASCA and AKC trials.
I took both, Misko and Certik, to the 2011 ASCA Nationals in Wisconsin. We had such a good week filled with many trials. We competed in everything in advanced levels, qualifying in every single competition. The more we competed the more I noticed that Misko was unbeatable and by the end of the Nationals, Misko was awarded the 2011 Most Versatile Australian Shepherd award and appeared on the cover of Aussie Times. Certik was 8 years old at that time and placed 3rd in the Most Versatile Aussie competition. I was so proud of both of them. These two are simply the best of the best!
Misko is retired and neutered now, but we have some frozen semen stored from him. He is still strong, healthy and ready to play Frisbie day or night. Misko is AKC and ASCA registered, his Hips are OFA Good and Elbows Normal, Eyes clear.
